Introduction / History

Chinese Mestizo or Mestizo de Sangley are one of the hundred ethnic groups of the Philippines. The Chinese Mestizo developed during the Spanish colonial regime when Chinese immigrants married native peoples. The majority of the Chinese immigrants where males and didn't bring women with them so they married the indigenous people. Today there is a substantial population and they are found in Chinese communities, especially Binondo, one of the largest "Chinatowns" in the world. Today they are known as Tsinoy (half Filipino, half Chinese "tsino").
